Your Dog Wants Beer -- In A Bar
Sure, there are endless beer bars opening in Los Angeles, but how many of them cater to canines? Exactly zero. Finally, a British pub is offering food and beer pairings just for dogs.
The Brandling Villa in South Gosforth, Newcastle is "is now serving a special beer designed for dogs so that drinkers' four-legged friends can also enjoy a tipple at the same time," reports The Daily Mail.
The new menu was created by the pub's chef, Sammy Dee, and the suds are from Bowser Beer, which is made in Phoenix, Arizona.
Humans can also order it, but why would they want to? The brew is non-alcoholic, is made from beef or chicken broth with malt barley and has no carbonation or hops, which can be toxic for dogs. It's proved popular with the furry set. Brandling Villa had to reorder after the first 48 bottles ran out in two weeks.
